Jacksonville, FL — A woman is shot in both of her legs by her boyfriend in a bizarre hunting accident.  Police say he was trying to shoot a hog.

52 year-old Lisa Simmons of Brandon was shot Saturday night in western Flagler County.  She’s in serious condition at Halifax Medical Center after undergoing surgery.

Police say 52 year-old Steve Egan thought he was shooting at a hog outside the couple’s tent.  Police say Egan thought he hit the animal but was unable to locate it when he left the tent.

When he heard a noise in the woods, Egan shot at what he thought was the hog.

Instead, Simmons was struck with the .30 caliber rifle bullet, traveling through both of her upper legs.
